The Day the Angels Fell follows Samuel, an older man on his way to a funeral- looking back on the summer he was 12 years old. A strange string of events lead Samuel's mother to die that summer, and stranger things still happens around the town afterwards (including finding the tree of life). I'm not entirely sure who the reading audience is supposed to be for this book. Even though the main character is a kid, I don't think many middle grade readers would appreciate it (though I haven't been 12 in a LONG time, so I could be wrong). The Day the Angels Fell was an interesting and sometimes intense read, with a message that death doesn't have to be scary.

I was intrigued by the title of this book from the start, so when Shawn created his Launch Team and gave us the opportunity to read the book beforehand, I said yes. I had no idea what I was in for.

This book is intended for younger people than I am, but I think if I had read it at that age, I might not have been able to finish it. This book is INTENSE in a good way. It’s spiritual, but not so much religious. There was so much going on under the surface. You just have to plunge into the story and hold on tight.

Sam and Abra made a great team. I don’t feel like the story was dumbed down or simplified in a way that kept me from engaging with it. I knew going in that I might have to stop every once in a while, but I found myself unable to do just that. I kept on going straight through.

One line from the book caught my attention, but was never explained. On Sam’s mother’s stone, it said, “Meet me at the edge of the world.” I loved that line and wished we had gotten to know mom better.

I was disappointed that Icarus didn’t play any part in the story going forward. I kept thinking, “What happened to the cat?”

I got a review copy from Shawn’s Launch team and from the publisher, Revell. I didn’t have to like it. I just did.

I was a little unsure about this book at first but I was quite pleasantly surprised after I read it!
The start is a little slow and hard for me to get into, but soon enough it sucked me right in. I'm glad I have the ARC of the next book handy.~
I didn't much care for how I was often WAY ahead of the characters (I know they're 12 but it was still just a little annoying waiting for them to catch up), and maybe a few other minor things, but otherwise a good novel! Not much negative to really say.
Do give it a try! ( )

This was billed as being similar to "Something Wicked This Way Comes" and in ways it was. I would also say it draws from concepts in "The Magicians Nephew" and "Descent Into Hell" (although I am not sure how familiar the author is with either work). All three deal, at some point, with the question of what you are willing to give in order to get that which you desire. All done on different ways, but those two kept coming back to me as I read.

Smucker has another book coming soon that continues the story. There are some questions left and it will be interesting to see where he goes ( )

The day the angels fell was a powerful story about loss, good vs. evil, and what happens after death. Samuel is only 12 years old when his mother is killed when she is struck by lightning trying to get his cat out of the tree. He sets out struggling to understand and looking for answers. This book was pretty good but honestly I wasn't a big fan of Samuel and found his personality distracting from the story. I would be willing to read this author again but probably wont pursue this story line.
